At this point, it’s official. Hybrid cars are here to stay, and despite some of the hesitancy some drivers may have had to adopt them early on, their success cannot be denied. Now, you have many hybrid options available to you. While that is a good thing, it does mean you need to take a little more time comparing those options. We’re here to help with that by matching up the 2019 Honda Insight vs the 2018 Toyota Prius.
Of course, one of the most important aspects of a hybrid vehicle is its efficiency, and you won’t find a significant difference between these two models, with the 2019 Honda Insight LX delivering 55 city mpg, 49 highway mpg and 52 combined mpg (both models share the same combined mpg figures).* But, differences can be found elsewhere, including the fact that the Insight does deliver superior horsepower in the chart below.

There is also a striking difference in price.

Such amenities include a power remote trunk release, fully automatic exterior lights, speed-sensitive steering and a remote starting system.
